Chime

 I downloaded Chime from my public library a few weeks ago. Now, I have to say that I am not usually an audiobook user because I get impatient with how long it takes to get through a book I have to listen to. I also get frustrated with the limited number of options some books provide in devices that can be used to listen. In this case, I had to download it to my computer, which is difficult to carry on a run. Enough of that rant.

I loved the flow of narrative in this interpretation of the book. The narrator, Susan Duerden, is perfect and the story is compelling. Briony’s first person narrative allows the reader to feel her confusion and pain while building suspense. A great addition to a great list. Strong characterization and a setting that becomes an integral part of the story, it’s well worth reading. Will not be a hit with my teen guys, unfortunately.
